Designing, editing and rendering 3D content should be left only to professionals because specialized and often very complex tools are needed for each and all of these operations. One of the most powerful and well-known animation software that is able to handle all the above mentioned tasks is Autodesk Maya.

Well-organized and visually appealing interface

This 3D modeling and animation solution comes with all the functions one would need to start a project from scratch or load an existing one to edit it. The interface is very well organized and balanced, even if comprises loads of buttons, menus and toolbars, not to mention that it is also highly customizable.

Comes equipped with powerful tools
